Our Pack meets weekly on Thursday nights @ Chichester Middle School Cafeteria from 6:30-8pm. Occasionally we have pack activities that are within our community on weekends.
Who can join: Boys in Grades 1-5
We do many different things throughout the year such as swimming, hiking, roller skating, disc golf, bowling, Science Day, Holiday ornaments, bingo night, PINE CAR DERBY and many more. We visit many places as well, like the Police Station, Firehouse, Radio Station, 911 Center, etc. We play a variety of sports and of course go CAMPING!
We are very active within our community as well. We have our annual community clean up, we participate in the Thanksgiving food drive and give donations directly within our Chichester community, participate in Community Day Parades, Health & Safety Fairs and the list goes on. Our Pack requires a parent/adult to stay with the Scout during our meetings/activities. This helps serve as a great opportunity for parents and children to develop bonding and spend some quality time together while doing it. It also helps solidify a sense of community and is really an exciting program for those that participate.
All of our activities have the goal of learning. We have a high focus on developing peer trust and relationships. There is definitely a focus on patience and self-discipline as we will participate in community outings and events. It is important that the children remember that when out in public we represent our organization and that if we want to be able to come back, we will need to behave and listen. We try to teach these skills through fun activities with learning hidden inside of each one. This helps develop leadership, listening and respect.
